Council to discuss parking meters along Washington Avenue

December 5, 2012 4:56:09 AM PST
Houston's city council will discuss putting in paid parking along Washington Avenue today.

The program would force drivers who park on Washington Avenue to pay. The program would charge more during peak hours.

The city says the parking meters will pay for sidewalk improvements and more street lights in the area. Residents would have parking permits to reserve spaces on nearby streets.

The council could vote on the issue today, or delay that vote.
